Culture Club Presents “Fully Awake: The Black Mountain College Experience” (2007)

Posted by bgsuenglish on November 3, 2009

“Tuesdays at the Gish,” a film series sponsored by The Culture Club, in association with the Department of Theatre and Film, continues tonight (Tuesday November 3, 2009) with a screening of Cathryn Davis and Neeley House’s 2007 documentary Fully Awake: The Black Mountain College Experience.

Black Mountain College was an experimental college based in North Carolina from 1933-1957 and was the location for such events as Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome, John Cage’s first multimedia happening, and the publication of early Beat poets in the Black Mountain Review. This documentary looks at the unique educational style and long-term significance of Black Mountain College through interviews with students, teachers, historians, and current artists, which serve to illuminate this school’s emphasis on balancing academics, art, work programs, and community living.

The screening begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Gish Film Theater in Hanna Hall.
